Guinea has won the fight against Ebola

Guinea has won the fight against Ebola

The World Health Organization announced on Tuesday that Guinea was free of Ebola for the first time since the epidemic was detected there in March 2014.
All three West African countries hardest hit by the epidemic —Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone — have now documented stopping the original chain of infections that experts believe began in December 2013.
The first reported case in the Ebola outbreak that ravaged west Africa over the course of the last two years dates back to December 2013, in Guéckédou, a forested area of Guinea near the border with Liberia and Sierra Leone.
Fode Tass Sylla, a spokesman for the country’s Ebola task force said: “This is a very big victory for the nation and the people of Guinea,” He thanked other countries, the health organization and private charities for their support.
